Bravo Fishing Charters Sydney

Bravo Fishing Charters Sydney offers a range of specialty charter fishing including: Deep Sea Fishing, Reef Fishing, Blue Eye Cod Fishing, Game Fishing and Snapper Fishing in Sydney with one of Australia’s most experienced crews which is certainly an experience not to be missed. We offer a choice of two vessels licenced with the New South Wales Department of Industry and Investment (Fisheries) in the charter boat category to accommodate the size of your group.

All our crew members are experienced fishermen particularly with the deep sea fishing principles and are fully licensed with New South Wales Maritime Authority. Operating our Sydney Fishing Charters from Cronulla in Sydney’s Southern anchorage of Port Hacking provides very quick access to some of the most productive deep sea fishing grounds especially off the Royal National Park.

Different times of the year generate different species of fish. For example, big snapper come in to spawn on the shallow reefs in colder months, whilst warmer water give better catches of large flathead and trevally.

Other good table fish such as perch, morwong, cod and tuna are regular catches by our anglers. All deep sea fishing tackle including rods, reels, hooks, line, sinker as well as good quality bait is supplied. Rods and reels are provided for all those anglers wishing to use them otherwise deck winches are offered as an alternative.

We carry a deckhand on most deep sea fishing charter boat trips. His job is to rig all the tackle, cut the bait and organise individual bait buckets. Once fish are caught he will take them of the hook, gut, scale and clean them and immediately place them into icy sea water to keep your deep sea fishing catch fresh and perfect for the table. All licences required for deep sea fishing by New South Wales Fisheries are also provided.

You just bring your lunch and your beers; we provide the rest. We cater for all levels of experience in deep sea fishing, from those who bring their own rods, reels and tackle to the beginner who will receive individual tuition to ensure a catch on their first day out on our charter boat, deep sea fishing.

Deep Sea Fishing Charters Sydney

We generally find the fish are on the reefs and sand all year round. Any time is a good time for this style of fishing. We fish the reefs, sand and gravel bottom off the Royal National Park south of Port Hacking. These are some of the best deep sea fishing grounds in the Sydney region as very few charter boats or recreational anglers fish this area. The species for capture varies with the different seasons however, Snapper, Morwong, Trevally, Perch, Wrasse and Flathead on a fishing trip with us are regular catches found in the fish box at the end of any day.
